Support your local theatre group at Nuffield in Southampton
The digital age might be causing headaches in most sectors of the culture and entertainment industry, but there is still a solid contingent of theatre fans who have never stopped going to plays.

By supporting theatrical groups in their local area, they are helping to keep the UK's theatre scene alive and kicking as we enter another year.

Those who have remained faithful to the unique atmosphere of top-quality theatre have been rewarded by the rise of amateur groups such as The Maskers Theatre Company, a group of writers, directors and players from Southampton who have been active on the theatre scene for almost two decades.

Now, The Maskers Theatre Company are preparing to bring their latest production Crimes of the Heart to the city's Nuffield Theatre.

Crimes of the Heart is a play set in that fertile breeding ground of great art: the American South. With a setting that would not be out of place in a William Faulkner or Margaret Mitchell novel,
Crimes of the Heart follows the differing fortunes of the Magrath siters of Hazelhurst Mississippi.

Penned by Beth Henley back in 1978, the play has won numerous awards over the years including a Pulitzer Prize.

The Maskers Theatre Company's take on this popular work will be directed by Sarah-Jayne Wareham, an actress and director who won acclaim in 2012 for her portrayal of Mrs Robinson in a production of The Graduate.

Support your local amateur drama group by making the trip to the Nuffield Theatre between February 26th and March 2nd and keep this sort of theatre alive.
